Greater Shepparton Secondary College is the secondary school component of the Victorian Government’s Shepparton Education Plan, aiming to improve student outcomes in this regional city.
The College was formed from the amalgamation of four existing secondary schools - Shepparton High School, McGuire College, Mooroopna Secondary College and Wanganui Park. It will come together as one school, on one site, on the property occupied by the former Shepparton High School.
Spread over a 76,862m2 site area, the new College will comprise 22,760m2 (GFA) of total permanent indoor area. Five buildings will house new, state of the art facilities: three Neighbourhood buildings, a Gymnasium and an Enterprise and Innovation Centre. An additional building, the original 1909 schoolhouse, has been retained and will be used for Student Health and Wellbeing purposes.
Designed to offer the facilities of a large school, while maintaining the feel of a smaller school environment, the College’s Neighbourhood buildings will each have three Houses, a Learning Resource Centre, canteen, Student Support Services and a tiered atrium for group gatherings. It will be the home base for a student’s entire secondary schooling.
The Enterprise and Innovation Centre will give students access to a broad range of subjects and career pathways in three specialist areas: technology, performing and fine arts and sciences.
The world-class facilities are due to be completed for the start of the 2022 school year and will cater for up to 2700 secondary students from Years 7 to 12.
